Time Warner Announces Move to Bring 500 jobs to Hillsborough County

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

Today, TW Business Services announced the creation of a shared services resource center in Hillsborough County. The shared services center is expected to employ up to 500 people. The company has narrowed its search of existing space to buildings in Tampa, Temple Terrace, and unincorporated Hillsborough County and is expected to announce a specific location within a few weeks. The company considered 59 locations for this project including locations in Florida, Georgia, and New York.

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, Temple Terrace Mayor Joe Affronti, and Hillsborough County Commission Chair Al Higginbotham issued the following joint statement about the company’s decision: "We realized early on that we needed to collaborate in order to accommodate the company's needs and timeline, so we each agreed to pursue approval of local incentives even though one or more of us will be eliminated and will therefore end up not having to participate in the incentives programs. The impact of Time Warner's decision on our local economy will be felt throughout our area and we will all benefit from the company's decision. This is a banner day for our residents and workforce. We look forward to demonstrating our appreciation by collectively offering TW Business Services a warm welcome and helping them become rapidly established here."
